About this title


An Army experiment gone wrong unleashes upon a quiet village a group of large and vicious killer animals, and fifteen-year-old Cathy Cooper watches her world turn into a bloody nightmare

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up In this suspenseful horror cum problem novel, the characters are believable and interesting, as is most of the plot. A top secret government research project on genetic manipulation that was rumored to have involved dogs has been abandoned. Suddenly the town is besieged by wild animal attacks. The government insists that all the dogs were destroyed, and there the matter rests, even as another person is brutally killed. Town attorney Jim Cooper tries to quell panic while coping with his 15-year-old daughter Cathy, recently expelled from prep school, and his wife Joan, who has been in and out of mental hospitals for years. Characterization is excellent, particularly that of Cathy, who is afraid that she'll eventually become mentally ill like her mother. The ``horror'' part of the novel, while certainly suspenseful, is flawed. No one ever suspects the government of covering up a project gone bad, or even asks why the dogs in the research project were destroyed. In addition, it occurs to only one scientist who had been involved in the genetic research that it is indeed ``his'' dog responsible for the horrible deaths. Surely other scientists would begin to wonder if one of their dogs had escaped and was doing what it had been bred to dokill. In spite of this flaw, horror fans will enjoy this gripping suspenseful tale. Elizabeth Mellett, Brookline Public Library, Mass.
